Technology Integrations

In software engineering, CI/CD or CICD is the combined practices of continuous integration and either continuous delivery or continuous deployment. CI/CD bridges the gaps between development and operation activities and teams by enforcing automation in building, testing and deployment of applications.



Edgescan has identified the need to shift left and identify vulnerabilities earlier in the software development lifecycle.

For this reason, a fully supported plugin was developed for CI/CD pipelines.  This integration allows DevOps teams to initiate VM scanning from their chosen platform.  Once initiated, a scan will take place, and a pass/fail will be returned depending on configured criteria.  The build will fail if the results do not match the configured criteria.  Otherwise, the build will proceed to the next step if applicable.

This docker image can be deployed to any appropriate environment.

Edgescan CI/CD integration

This image allows to kick off an assessment and fails/succeeds according to its result.

It succeeds if the assessment completes with no vulnerabilities found (a tolerance for the risk level can be provided), it fails otherwise.

When it’s not waiting for the scan to finish it succeeds once the assessment is started.

The program will exit with value 0 on success and -1 otherwise.
